Try any of these vegetable combinations to create a simply delicious soup: carrot, parsnip, celery, winter squash, yam, ginger, broccoli, onion, cauliflower daikon radish, leek, carrot, mustard greens, shitakes, onion, kale, cabbage or rutabaga.


  • Use one of each vegetable.
  • Cut all veggies to roughly the same size, around 2-inch chunks.
  • Place chopped veggies in a pot with water just covering them. 
  • Bring to a boil then lower to simmer.
  • Cook until a fork inserts smoothly into each vegetable, probably about 20 minutes.
  • Add your favorite condiments.
  • Eat as is or purée in a food processor, blender or with a hand mixer.
  • Notes

  • Garnish with parsley and scallion. 
  • To add richness to soup, sauté one medium onion and add to water before cooking.
